The Problem

25-30% of Americans are obese. That's a statistic that keeps me up at night.

How did we get here? How did we fall into such bad habits? I firmly believe that when it comes to health and wellness, the majority of people have the best of intentions. But the gap between those intentions and the knowledge it takes to understand wellness and nutrition is too large for most to bridge alone.

The reality is that crash diets and new years resolutions without a long term plan don't work. To get fit, we need to overhaul the way in which we approach fitness. We need to develop a lifestyle, not a routine. It doesn't have to be hard. It doesn't have to be hours in a sweaty gym. It doesn't have to be leafy salads and flax seeds. In fact, when done right, getting fit can be a very enjoyable process.

The Solution

Find a way to love fitness.

I truly believe in the old cliché that life is about the journey, not the destination. In fitness, if you focus on the destination, rather than the journey, you'll probably never get there. But if instead, you find a way to make the process of getting fit fun, fulfilling, and enjoyable, you have a much better chance of getting where you want to be.

All you need is a little bit of education, and a push in the right direction. Let me help you make fitness your lifestyle.

About me

I love exercising. Other than time with my wife and two beautiful daughters, there is nothing I enjoy more.

I'm one of the lucky ones. For me, it started at a young age. As a child I grew up with a father that headed out the door most mornings to run. My mother was a black belt in tae kwon do. So without thought, I learned that exercise was simply something you "do".

I respond to challenges, both internal and external. As a result I've progressed to the point where I compete in ultra marathons at distances that many don't enjoy in a car. I've run from the southern rim of the Grand Canyon, to the Colorado River, and back, just because I could. For me, there is nothing more therapeutic than pulling on my running shoes and pushing my body to the limit.

But running is simply one form of exercise. Exercise can be a hike, playing hopscotch, ice-skating, or swimming at a lake in the summertime. It can be with friends or family. It can be quality "alone time". It's simply about being active and enjoying something. And that's a message I carry whether I am working with a first-time client adapting to new workouts or experienced athletes, everyone can be excited about a workout if it's something they enjoy.
